Error codes

Postby vaxace » Thu Oct 21, 2010 5:23 pm

Can someone point me to, or otherwise provide a comprehensive list of error codes for the Roku DVP?
I'm using eval() and getting a return code for which I can't find a definition (&hE4, 228)

A complete list would be really helpful.

There's a list defined in the BrightScript reference manual. I assume you mean in addition to that? I'm not sure of any.

The only list I could find in the BrightScript reference manual is in section 6.8-GetLastRunTimeError().
That only lists eight codes and I have experienced others.

We will be providing a way to get a complete list of error codes programatically in a future release. Meanwhile, here is an unofficial list, not guaranteed to be completely correct, but probably almost so.

Code: Select all
